Artist : Cassandra Barney

Cassandra Christensen Barney paints personal visual narratives. Her paintings quietly depict stories about love, gratitude, sorrow, and hope.

Cassandra frequently asks viewers of her work to respond to issues and questions that she is investigating in her art. She is passionate about her art, but she considers the relationships that she builds in life the sustaining and creative force behind that passion. Therefore, the stylized figures in each of her works are largely based on unique self-reflection in response to that which is not the self.
